French-speaking cinema will be on Havana’s theaters from March 18 to 26, to celebrate the legacy of that culture. Films like The Cowboys, Domingo, Neither Heaven nor Earth, Hope, Good Luck, Algeria and Melody will be displayed.
Also on screen will be the documentary Tiga, by the director Arnold Antonin, a co-production between Haiti and France. French ambassador to Cuba, Jean-Marie Bruno, said that the day of celebrations would also include activities related to other manifestations of art such as dance, fine arts and music.
Francophonie is an expression of an open, diverse and shared world. We are in favor of plurality, of different modes of expression and we will demonstrate it this week, he stated.
There will also be a significant presence of Canadian, Haitian, Algerian, Tunisian and French artists at the Havana World Music Festival on 23, 24, 25 and 26 of this month.
